Has upgraded its wide area network

RNIB, a charity which supports blind and partially sighted people, has prepared for future projects by upgrading its wide area network, bringing 30 UK offices into one IT network.

The managed services provider, Claranet, was chosen to upgrade RNIB’s wide area network (WAN) which has taken over a year to complete.  Now data can be transferred electronically from audio transcription services in London, Belfast and Cardiff to Talking Books production centre. Previously this was transferred through an audio disk and courier.

Head of information technology, Jon Curry, said: “The key purpose of the WAN is to improve the performance and reliability of the systems used by RNIB staff, volunteers and partners so that we can provide better services.”
